Arched Cabins

Quick and efficient kit cabins are appealing to people who want to live in a tiny house or have a tiny house as a small investment property, studio space or rental property. However, they tend to be on the pricey side. Arched Cabins, a growing company located in both Houston, Texas and Timberon, New Mexico have created these tiny arched cabins for a low price.


Each of these colorful cabins can be adapted to fit your space requirements and needs. The cabins have been built to be used as artist studios, retirement homes, hunting lodges and tiny houses. Each can be built as an open floor plan or with a loft. The costs of their five standard widths are actually quiet reasonable and include all structural components, sheeting, insulation and construction instructions. A 12×20 foot cabin is $3,600, a 14×20 foot cabin is $4,000 and a 12×40 foot cabin is $7,200. Larger cabins from 16 feet to 24 feet wide range in price from $4,400 to $12,800 for the kits. Shipping is added on later and is adjusted for fuel costs and distance. Various foundations can be used with an Arched Cabin including poured concrete, wood pier and beam as well as pier foundations made of steel. To save even more money, the smaller units can be built in one day with minimal labor.

The company currently has a promotion going on now where you can get a 14×20 Arched Cabin Kit for $3,695. The kit includes all structural steel components, insulation, Superspan PBR Sheeting and all hardware for construction.

Tiny House in a Landscape

Cabin Fever builds a small building called the Zip Cabin and Mike and Melissa have put one on some remote property in New Mexico. They took this beautiful panorama of their cabin on their last visit. The property is completely off-grid with no address, the only way to find it is with GPS coordinates. The second picture is a close up of the Zip Cabin with Melissa sitting out front.

The Zip Cabin is 120 square feet in size. If you are interested in learning more about Cabin Fever and the cabins they build stop by their website:

Tiny House in a Landscape

Esther Fredrickson sent this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape. Here is what she says:

We’re currently building a tiny house in Albuquerque, New Mexico (the outside is complete; work on the interior has just begun). The building site is also a field that needs to be flood irrigated. The water came particularly late this year, but it finally came and gave us a good excuse to clean up our construction site.

Clothesline Tiny Homes

When a custom home builder and an architectural designer decide to build a tiny house together, there is a guarantee that something special will be born. Shane and Carrie Caverly of Clothesline Tiny Homes are currently living in their new 144 square foot baby and are also available to design, consult and build custom homes for anyone looking for a simpler lifestyle. The married couple decided they were fed up with paying rent and mortgages and having nothing to show for it, so with their 30+ years of combined building skills they drew up their own design that is timeless, clean, and modern.


So why the funny name?

“Shane thought of it!” Carrie said. “I came up with about a hundred names, including Roadrunner Tiny Homes (which I still think is awesome) but none of them were sticking. We were out in the backyard at our former rental house, next to the clothesline, and Shane said ‘What about Clothesline Tiny Homes, because it’s so small you’re going to need a clothesline.'” Continue reading
